With everything that’s going on in the world, it’s safe to say that we all spend most of our time at home. What’s more, most of us only go out to get groceries, and no one has time to dress up for that. But just because you’re not headed to a fancy party, that doesn’t mean you can’t look cute! That’s why we’ve made a list of some easy to emulate winter outfit ideas for 2021 that you can wear on any occasion.

So, whether you’re going out or staying in, you’ll be dressed to impress!

1. Oversized Sweater with Jeans

Whoever invented oversized sweaters was a genius! This clothing item is both incredibly comfy and chic, especially when paired with some skinny jeans. And did we mention it’s something that both men and women look great in?

You can dress up this look with some boots, or go for the relaxed look by opting for some sneakers.

2. Jeans and a Graphic T-Shirt

Mom jeans, skinny jeans, or basically any kind of jeans ─ if you’ve got them in your closet, pair them with a graphic t-shirt and add a plain long-sleeved shirt underneath. Don’t forget to accessorize with a belt.

We also recommend wearing some boots if you’re going for the retro look and adding a splash of gold jewelry. If you’re planning on spending the day outside, a bomber jacket would look amazing with this outfit.

3. Plaid Pants and a Turtleneck

Plaid pants can look absolutely gorgeous when paired with a turtleneck. Although this simple ensemble can be worn as a casual outfit, you can also wear it at the office. Just add a mono-colored blazer and you’re good to go.

On the other hand, if you’re keeping it casual, some Converse shoes would look amazing with this outfit (if it’s not too cold to wear them, of course).

4. Plain White Shirt and Cardigan

There is nothing better than pairing a plain white t-shirt with a warm cardigan! This outfit is so simple, yet incredibly versatile and unisex. For instance, if you’re working from home, you can throw on some leggings and you’ll be comfortable all day.

On the other hand, if you’re going out, all you have to do is trade in those leggings for some boot-cut jeans.

And if you’re a man who loves wearing cardigans, just throw on a T-shirt and some jeans and you’ll look just like an Abercrombie model!

5. Belted Jacket and Boots

If you’re planning on spending your day outside, this outfit will keep you incredibly warm, and you’ll look as if you stepped out of a fashion magazine.

For starters, you will need a belted jacket that falls to your knees. Next, grab some skinny jeans, and a form-fitting sweater. Also, don’t forget to wrap a thick scarf around your neck.

As for the shoes, if you’re a woman we recommend going with some chunky knee-high boots. Men, on the other hand, will look amazing in some polished dress shoes.

This may even be one of our favorite winter outfit ideas for 2021, especially during those freezing cold winter nights.

6. Wool Skirt and Tights

Don’t think you can look sexy in the winter? Think again!

Pair a wool skirt with some thigh-high boots, a form-fitting shirt, and a belt. This look is perfect if you’re going on a date, or you just want to look hot while you’re grocery shopping.

7. Leather Jacket and Jeans

Since the previous look was targeted towards women, this one’s just for the guys.

Pair a leather jacket with jeans and a belt, and top it all off with some motorcycle boots. This look is as simple as they get, but will without a doubt turn some heads!

8. Plaid Blazer and Jeans

Nothing says business-casual better than pairing a blazer with some jeans. In our opinion, this look will never go out of style!

However, instead of going for a mono-colored blazer, why not try out some plaid for a change? You can opt to wear a t-shirt underneath, or you can zhuzh it up by wearing a form-fitting shirt tucked into the jeans, adding a belt and your favorite boots.

9. Jeans and a Striped Sweater

If you’re looking for an alternative look, then you’ll love this simple one. Pair some skinny jeans with a sweater (oversized or form-fitting, whichever you prefer) and add Dr. Martens boots to complete the look.

If you end up choosing a form-fitting sweater, consider adding a belt as an accessory.

10. Button-Up Blouse and Sweater

If you’re after a preppy look, then wear a button-down blouse underneath a form-fitting sweater (preferably black) and put on some trousers. We recommend wearing a white blouse if you have one, as it will stand out against the color of your sweater.

Finally, if you have some dress shoes, they would look amazing with this outfit.

11. Faux Leather Trousers and a Turtleneck

Faux leather trousers are great for the winter and will keep you incredibly warm no matter how cold it is outside. However, not many people know what to pair them with. The best way to make your trousers look chic is to simply pair them with a mono-colored turtleneck and add a faux leather jacket and thick wool scarf.

For shoes, you can wear some chunky sneakers or boots, it’s up to you.

12. Ugly Christmas Sweater and Jeans

Nothing could conclude our list of winter outfit ideas for 2021 than this final suggestion ― ugly Christmas sweaters! All you have to do is pair your sweater with some comfy jeans, warm boots, and fuzzy socks. You can basically wear this outfit anywhere, and you’ll feel warm and cozy 24/7.

Furthermore, if you and your significant other are having a date night, try to find matching sweaters. That will definitely get you in the holiday spirit!

In Conclusion

Unfortunately, PJ’s and sweatpants have become the staple of 2020. Let’s make sure 2021 is different.

Even though COVID-19 has thrown us quite the curveball, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t dress up from time to time. Whether you’re just popping to the store, or going on a date night, make sure you take the time to pamper yourself and throw on something that makes you feel confident.

Hopefully, you’ll find some inspiration from our list of winter outfit ideas for 2021! Feel free to take our suggestions and make them your own.
